Eastern Storm question

If you were putting a team together to run the Eastern Storm, who would you hire for a driver and who would you hire for crew chief ? Assume the team has the equipment to win.

Re: 71p

i was hoping to get the call for 2019. I'm ready for a comeback. At 62, I could be the oldest "Rookie of the Year" ever in USAC and I come complete with sponsors, engines, parts, & beer.

Re: What causes the RR axles to shear off?

I would say the amount of races on the axle is one cause as things do not last forever and the other is a lot of people striaghen bent axles which also leads to failure.

Re: Port Royal USAC Eastern Storm - Cottle vs Ballou.

The incident at Port Royal was unfortunate and needless......if there is any blame for this incident, it is on me. I should never had the car at the track that day for multiple reasons.
